It is a mockery of yourself to pass a vote of confidence in the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, who has not been seen in the State for 65 days.
Above was the view of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the State in response to the vote of confidence passed by 31 members of the State executive council in Akeredolu’s leadership style on Thursday.
PDP’s publicity secretary, Kennedy Peretei in a statement on Friday morning, described such move by the State excos as dancing naked in the market square.

AKEREDOLU’S CABINET DANCES NAKED IN THE MARKET SQUARE.
Keen watchers of Ondo State politics may have been wondering how the State arrived at this sorry state of affairs. Where the ship of the state is just floating on the high sea, no captain, no direction and about to hit a dangerous cliff any time soon.
While concerned opinion leaders in the state are still in the process of proffering solutions to the present political logjam, the State Executive Committee came up with a meaningless communique passing a vote of confidence on their boss whose whereabouts have been unknown for more than 65 days.
As if to shred whatever was remaining of the Akeredolu administration, two State Commissioners ridiculed the purported communique as ‘senseless’ and of ‘no effect’.
Last week, Babajide Akeredolu, the Governor’s heir apparent was seen in Oke-Ijebu area of Akure, inspecting government projects with the full compliment of the Governor’s convoy and security apparatus. Things have never been this bad in Ondo State. Who voted for Babajide as Governor, or his mother, Betty, both of whom have held the state by its jugular?
Now that the State Executive Committee has decided to come and dance in the market place naked, it is clear the days of this government are numbered.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ondo State Chapter wishes to advise Akeredolu’s appointees to be honourable in the discharge of their responsibilities instead of making a mockery of themselves in the eyes of the people.
